A Tour Along Chengdu Marathon
/ By Home in Chengdu
At the beginning of 2018, the "Action Plan for Building Chengdu into an International Sports Events City" was released. According to the plan, from 2018 to 2020, Chengdu will hold 67 international sports events, of which 40% will be of independent brands or characterized by Chengdu culture. On October 27, 2018, the Chengdu International Marathon, one of Chengdu's major local events, will unveil with 28,000 participants. During the 5-day registration, a total of 50,294 players registered for participation. Not only local applicants from various provinces and cities in China are involved, but also many foreign athletes are expected to participate in the Marathon in Chengdu.
Compared with the "straightest track" in 2017, the new track design has become the highlight of this year's Chengdu Marathon. In 2018, the starting point of the Chengdu Marathon is located at the Jinsha Site Museum. The route passes through many landmarks such as Hejiang Pavilion, Anshun Covered Bridge, Global Center, Century City New International Convention and Exhibition Center, etc., with the indication of "running from the splendid ancient civilization of Chengdu into a new era of vitality".
In October, "Home in Chengdu" will take you to travel through time "from ancient era to modern age" and experience the themed Chengdu tour - Ancient Chengdu, Greenway Autumn Tour, and Modern Journey along the 2018 Chengdu International Marathon route. In addition, there is a practical and interesting map of the Chengdu Marathon to enrich your tour experience in the city.
